Still loving Squadrons (in VR).

Noticing new stuff during our movies watch-through. Check out how Luke’s lightsaber doesn’t shut off at the 1:34 mark of this video, even though it sounds like it does. My assumption is that it was put in there because it looks like the blade may have grazed the side of the cave and that should sound like … something, I guess.
